Hello Tynes Tigers,

I would like to welcome you to Tynes Elementary School. I appreciate the privilege of serving the community, school and students of the Middleburg and Oakleaf areas. Together the staff and I work to challenge our learners to reach their maximum potential, academically and socially.  Daily our students show their Tiger P.R.I.D.E (Positive, Respectful, Integrity, Determined, Effort) by coming to school ready to engage and take ownership of their learning.

All classrooms at Tynes Elementary are designed to be a safe and positive learning environment, where students are set up for success. We believe in a comprehensive and inclusive education for all students. While our focus is on reading, math, science and social studies; we also offer classes in music, spanish, technology, art, physical education, media and science (STEM lab). We currently have three technology labs and computers in every classroom. Our chorus and music students are given many opportunities to perform for our community through plays and concerts. Our STEM lab, music and art programs are featured at our annual community wide food truck festival. This annual event allows us to come together as a community, enjoy each other’s company and showcase our students.

We look forward to forming an educational partnership with each and every family. We know that our success depends on the strength of those partnerships because together we can truly help each student be successful.

Welcome to Tiger Country!
